WikiProject WisconsinEdit

Welcome to Wikipedia:WikiProject Wisconsin! I live near Chilton. I haven't forgotten the kicker either! I don't remember any other kicker rushing for a TD! Royalbroil T : C 06:58, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Manitowoc ReversionEdit

I reverted your removal of a vandalized picture of downtown. It turns out a vandal uploaded a bad image over the top of an image that I had uploaded. I reverted the image and undid your image removal. I guess you should have checked out the image first this time. Anyhow, I have never seen this type of vandalism before. Thanks for watching for the vandalism! Royalbroil T : C 06:17, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Also, I see that you renamed the article Branch Blaze. I wonder how notable a baseball team from Branch could be. Is that a rec team? They should be at least semi-pro or they should be deleted. I could see writing an article on the unincorporated village of Branch, but not its rec baseball team. Royalbroil T : C 06:23, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

New Page PatrolEdit

Great work you are doing on NPP. Rettetast 22:02, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

I echo what Rettetast said. I've been going through CAT:CSD tonight and have deleted several pages that you tagged. Great job! --BigDT 06:22, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

HahaEdit

This David Slava article business is highly entertaining. Good work on keeping a cool head! riana_dzasta 01:18, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

David "Slava" AxeEdit

I didn't create the article, and it was already being speedy deleted.... what's the harm? Juppiter 04:49, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Edit summariesEdit

When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:

 

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field, especially for big edits or when you are making subtle but important changes, like changing dates or numbers. Thank you. RHB Talk - Edits 22:40, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

SubstingEdit

Hello. Please substitute your warnings when warning vandals by simply adding "subst:" to the template. E.g. {{subst:uw-vandalism1}} instead of just {{uw-vandalism1}}. Doing so will place the contents of the template in the talk page instead of just transcluding the template. Thank you and keep up the good work. Regards, Húsönd 04:41, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for protecting my userpageEdit

I stepped out to report the vandal. He got blocked indefinitely for his efforts. Morenooso 04:53, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Spam on artist boardsEdit

I warned the user, if they continue, report them again and they will be blocked. TimVickers 01:09, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Arcade creek projectEdit

Hi, you tagged this article as patent nonsense. It doesn't fit that description. It's just a non-notable group project, so I've changed the tag to {{db-bio}}. Try to find the most appropriate tag in the future. Thanks. Leebo86 04:38, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

substing warningsEdit

When using certain template tags on talk pages, don't forget to substitute with text by adding subst: to the template tag. For example, use {{subst:uw-test1}} instead of {{uw-test1}}. This reduces server load and prevents accidental blanking of the template. MKoltnow 04:59, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Martin Luther editEdit

Thanks for catching my screw-up. I was just undoing my mistake when you caught it.

Steven AveryEdit

Why did you remove the information by 66.168.6.93 on the Steven Avery article? That statement was true! Tom70 00:45, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Annie MailEdit

Hi. You recently tagged this article for speedy deletion under A7 - notability not asserted. As the article does assert notability (although it doesn't source it), I have removed the speedy tag. If you still think this article should be deleted, please consider proposed deletion or the articles for deletion process. Thanks! Natalie 20:45, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi from JackofOzEdit

Hi, ChesterMarcol. Re your question on the Ref Desk about telegram "stop"s, it really interests and intrigues me that you thought they occurred at random times. I'd love to know more about your educational background - seriously.

I should explain. I went to primary school in the mid 50s to early 60s (I'm 56 now), and it was instinctive to my generation that the "stops" corresponded with periods (we still call them "full stops" in Australia), and marked the end of a sentence. When I was at school, I never heard of anyone having any problem understanding this, but I don't recall it ever being explicitly taught; it was just, well, obvious. However, my opinion of primary and secondary education has been steadily diminishing over the years, as I see more and more highly intelligent people having all kinds of what I would have thought were basic problems, the sorts of things that in my opinion should be taught at a young age (but obviously aren't any longer). And I see them demonstrating only a rudimentary knowledge of the basic building blocks of written language, what with run-on sentences, comma splices, total lack of capitalisation, horrendous spelling, and a host of other problems. I hasten to add that nothing like that was evident in your question. I'm trying to do some work in the educational field, helping teenagers and young adults with these sorts of issues. Hence this message. Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers -- JackofOz 13:41, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, CM. You're obviously in "a class of your own" :). It seems not all is lost, when a young person like you can write a paragraph or two that equal my own lofty standards. I hope you enjoy your experience with Wikipedia. I'm here for the long haul. Cheers -- JackofOz 22:19, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

LutheranismEdit

The WikiProject Lutheranism Collaboration Project is under way. Please help improve this month's article, or make a suggestion for next month's article. To add the collaboration banner to your userpage or talk page, use {{Lutheran COTM}}. -- Pastordavid 20:23, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Edit to Brewers rosterEdit

Hi ... I see you deleted Greg Aquino from the Brewers roster page (and proudly so ... lol) and moved Spurling from the extended roster to the active roster. Aquino really should have been moved to the extended roster since he's still on their 40-man roster. Accordingly, I've put his name back on the page, but thought I'd leave you a note of explanation and for future reference. Thanks for your contributions. --Sanfranman59 08:17, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Seeking community input re standardizing baseball roster pagesEdit

Hi ... I'm leaving you this note because you recently made edits to one of the Major League Baseball roster pages. I've made a proposal for standardizing the format, structure and content of these pages here and would appreciate your input so that we may reach a consensus. Thanks. --Sanfranman59 06:38, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

CategoriesEdit

I reverted your addition of Dahmer to category:people from Wisconsin, since he's already in category:people from Milwaukee. As with all categories, if somebody is in a category which is a subset of a broader category, then they don't get put in the broader category. Thus, Milwaukee's own Stanley G. Weinbaum doesn't go in category:science fiction writers, because he is in category:American science fiction writers. (I messed up on this one myself a time or two, before I caught on to what I call the nested-category system.) --Orange Mike 13:31, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

High School picEdit

I have replied on my talk page. I think you're wrong and I have proof. Both pictures were taken of the same school on Mirro Drive. Royalbroil 02:19, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

ThanksEdit

Thank you for doing that! I hadn't realized there were two "Two Rivers" in WI and just put that section in the first article I came upon. PBP (talk) 22:47, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:WhistlingStraits11Fairway.JPGEdit

Thanks for uploading File:WhistlingStraits11Fairway.JPG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 00:28, 4 October 2010 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 00:28, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
